How to get rid of frog fugus hair in the head and face? Soft hair is growing from the places that was touched with frog urine.

Oh : Oh my. I think I am stumped. There are studies in ireland regarding the skin secretions of the waxy monkey frog and the giant firebellied toad and angiogenesis ( growth of new blood vessels). I am familiar with bufotoxin since one of our dogs had a run in with a bufo toad (not in the us). I have heard tales about toads causing warts if handled.

I am sorry that i can't be more help. ...Read more

Even if the frog or its urine had some germ, like a fungus or a bacteria, touching it could not possibly cause hair to grow. What you see is likely not hair, and you should go to your doctor for a checkup. ...Read more
